I need some joy in my life.” How about you? Could you use more joy and creativity in your life? For the past few years,…Read More

This week y’all have had me in all my feels. My weekend was a little rough. First off, I’m in a hand splint (ruptured ligament in my right pointer finger) and tried knitting on the plane – a definite no-go for the next 6 weeks 😩. Then all my credit cards and license…Read More

Somebody please, pinch me. No really… Has this all just been a dream? Did Joji really make a bag just for us? And is it really the style I love the very most, the Santa Cruz with its modern square shape and exposed seams, big enough for a big sweater project plus all my other everyday bag stuff (wallet,…Read More
Sometimes in life, you just want to keep things simple. In fact, I believe that the appeal of simplicity is the very thing that brings most of us to knitting to begin with. Taking sticks and string and a simple repetitive motion and creating something beautiful. That’s why we’re all here together, isn’t it? Over…Read More
